Hi all Lexus owners.

Looking for information and reviews on noise levels in Mk2 GS300 models

I have a 2004 MK2 GS300 with a noise level reading between 74dba > 84dba+

under normal driving conditions.

In normal language it sounds like you are travelling in a jet plane.

Am i the only Lexus owner with this problem ????????

I would appreciate your comments.

Road noise... certain tyres are very noisy - especially Avon's :winky:

Two things you can try:

- There are two drain hoses from the sunroof, which come out by the rear wheels. They need to only just stick out below the bodywork, any lower and they transmit noise into the cabin.

- If you look under the car, under the drivers (and passengers I think) footwell, you should see some 'drainage' holes with rubber bungs fitted to them. If these plugs are not fitted, lots of wind noise can get into the car under the carpets.

Failing that, it could be a badly fitted windshield. I had to have mine removed and refitted twice because the bonding failed along the lower edge, which allowed loads of wind noise (and a draught!) into the car at speeds of over 40-50 mph.

Hope you get it sorted.

I'll second that - my car has Avons and the road noise is very high - Tony at STS was quite sure it was the Avons. My wife's GS300 has Goodyear tyres and is much quieter. Some tyres are just noisier that others and it seems very difficult to find out which to avoid.
